Finally a game where we can brutally murder prostitutes  :pow:

 

EA developer Visceral Games will follow Dante's Inferno with a project based on British serial killer Jack the Ripper.

 

That's what the LA Times was told by a pair of sources (via VG247) "close to EA".

 

The report added that Visceral - creator of Dead Space - is working on another unannounced title as well.

 

Both games will be made without creative director Glen Schofield and chief operating officer Michael Gondry, though, as they have defected to Activision Blizzard where they will establish and run a brand new studio.

 

Jack the Ripper was the nickname of the notorious British killer who slaughtered prostitutes on the streets of London circa 1888. Probably as a result of all those violent videogames he must have played. Whether we'll play as him or as the authorities pursuing his capture is unknown for now

 

Be interesting to see what they do with this, seriously doubt you'll be playing as the ripper, more likely tracking him down or something.

What's stopping you, then? Get out there and do it! You're a writer, think of their tears, screams and lamentations as the benefits of "people watching".

 

Thanks for the encouragement, I will head out into the night. Look for the "Fake Mike Ripper" in the morning news.

:lol: I feel so bad for that guy, whoever he is. You're going to leave a photograph of him, and he's going to become embroiled in a massive world of shit.

 

He was just living his life.

EA studio Visceral Games' interpretation of Jack the Ripper will cast the legendary British serial killer as a hero.

 

Instead of disembowelling prostitutes, Mr Ripper will save innocent people from demons and vampires, using an exaggerated array of weaponry and some kind of time-slow ability.

 

That's what "sources" told Destructoid after the Jack the Ripper game was leaked by the LA Times.

 

Visceral's approach to the material may infuriate "Ripperologists", but sounds similar to the hack-and-slash treatment the studio has given Dante's Divine Comedy in Dante's Inferno.

 

Do remember that a Jack the Ripper game is still unconfirmed by EA, however convincing the evidence may appear.

 

:lol:
